Sitka National Historic Park
This 107-acre park contains the site of a Tlingit Indian Fort and features a collection of Haida & Tlingit totem poles as well as an exhibit of Tlingit and Russian artifacts. The park's story continues at the Russian Bishop's House, one of the last surviving examples of Russian colonial architecture in North America. This original 1843 log structure conveys the legacy of Russian America through exhibits, refurbished Bishop's living quarters, and lavish icons in the Chapel of the Annunciation. A temperate rain forest setting provides spectacular scenery along the park's coastal trail. The trail circles back along Indian River to the visitor center. Another loop trail continues across the Indian River footbridge past the Memorial to the Russian Midshipmen who died in the Battle of Sitka.
